Emily Carr ( 1871-1945)was a major Canadian artist inspired by the Indigenous peoples of the Pacific Northwest. Last Saturday when I was in the Yorkville district of Toronto I found a statue of her entitled “Emily Carr and Friends” by Joe Farard.
Here is a photo of Emily taken during her life.
Clearly horses were a part of her life. Her paintings have a wonderful vibrancy. Here are two examples. Arbutus tree-1922 and Thunderbird-1929.
